Clive Owen has reportedly become the latest big-name Brit to pull out of Spike Lee's Oldboy remake, according to industry reports.
Colin Firth was originally slated to play the villain in the film - a new look at Chan-wook Park's ultra-violent 2003 movie - but he was replaced by Owen.
Rooney Mara was also briefly attached to the film, which will star Josh Brolin, but the lead female role has since been filled by Jane Eyre star Mia Wasikowska.
